Japanese Team to Resume Excavations in Bolaghi Valley


22 January 2007




LONDON, (CAIS) -- A group of Japanese experts are due to arrive to Iran next week to start their excavations at Bolaghi Valley, Fars province. The team will also study the historic relics unearthed so far in this historic site. Based on the current plan, excavations by Japanese archaeologists will continue until March 21.


Announcing this news, director of ICHTO’s Archaeology Research Centre, Hassan Fazeli Nashli, told Persian service of CHN that the Japanese government will pay all the costs of excavations by the Japanese team and ICHTO will be in charge of their transportation and accommodation.


This is while in an earlier interview with CHN during the recent seminar on archaeological achievements at Bolaghi Valley had announced excavations at this historic site were finished and no further studies are needed at Bolaghi Valley.


However, the coming of the Japanese team indicates that excavations will resume in Bolaghi Valley and will last for another two months. This further shows that the Dam will not be flooded until late March. “This tells us that we still have time to continue our excavations in the historic sites near Sivand Dam,” said Fazeli Nashli, adding that ICHTO is ready to provide the necessary facilities for other archaeologists who are interested to continue their studies at Bolaghi Valley.
